Just when you thought the Fast & Furious franchise couldn’t possibly come up with more ideas about where to drive on this planet, they just might have gone to space.
During Ludacris‘ SiriusXM interview with The Jess Cagle Show on Thursday (July 9), co-host Julia Cunningham brought up the topic of space when tossing theories Luda’s way about the forthcoming Fast & Furious 9. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the rapper/actor’s response seemed to all but confirm her theory.
“I will say that you are very intuitive, because you said something right, but I’m not going to give it away,” Luda said after Cunningham named a few ideas. When she narrowed in on the film going to outer space, he seemed to confirm it further.
“I don’t know,” he said after putting a finger to his lip to signify a secret. “I don’t know what you said.”
Originally scheduled to hit theaters on May 22, F9 has been pushed to a release date of April 2, 2021 because of the coronavirus. But according to Luda, that’s only going to make it better.
“That just gives the editors a little more time to perfect it even more,” he said. “So, now I can only imagine what’s going to happen. Hypothetically, if there is a Fast 10 and 11, and you understand the time the creatives, the people who are writing these scripts right now have to make these the best possible sequels of all time — I can’t even imagine. That is what I am thinking.”
Along with his Furious co-star Tyrese, Ludacris was one of a handful of celebs who showed up to pay respects to George Floyd at his memorial service in Minnesota last month. In addition to both men, T.I. and Tiny, Master P, Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish and more were in attendance as well.
